This winter has been lacking in the snow department so Staci and I took advantage and went out to look for antler. We didn't find any but not for a lack of trying. Some trail camera photos from later on that week showed even the smallest of bucks still had its antlers on. But, we enjoyed the warm sun and some great views of the local bog.
Reason number 3,657,935 why my Dad is the best: As we were snowmobiling, we approached a bog and three eagles with about 20 crows took off. It could only mean one thing in my book - something was dead. We circled back and walked around in the snow but the birds had left and we couldnt find anything that would resemble a meal. A part of me thinks that we were in the wrong piece of land and should have been on the other side of the bog but in our snowmobile gear, we were not going to cover a lot of ground. I was disappointed that we couldn't find what the birds were eating but I was able to get some good pictures of one of the mature eagles and the immature eagle that were flying around.
